Some people believe that Bayonetta and Vanquish creators at PlatinumGames are working on Metal Gear Solid Rising. Well, that’s just not the case. Speaking with Kotaku, Platinum producer Atsushi Inaba has dispelled the rumors.
“I am aware of the rumor that says [Devil May Cry and Bayonetta‘s Hideki] Kamiya is working on Rising. It’s not true,” Inaba assured.
Inaba gave this simple and terse reply when asked if it was then correct that Platinum has no involvement with the game: “Yes.” So, the rumors have been laid to rest.
Expect to learn more about Rising leading up to its 2012 release.
